Amazon App Coming to Apple TV

And as The Verge mentions, the Home Pod also has a "Musicologist" feature that "works with Apple Music to stream the music you ask the speaker's built-in Siri to play". Its sharp cylinder shape cuts a more imposing figure, and it's taller too - it's over 9 inches tall while the Apple HomePod is less than 7 inches. BBC's Dave Lee writes in his review, "Off-camera demonstration of Apple's new HomePad speaker confirmed what the company promised on stage: it sounds terrific". Although Apple Watch has emerged as the leader among smartwatches, it hasn't become a smash hit like the iPhone.

After throwing some shade at Sonos and the Amazon Echo, Apple finally unveiled the HomePod at its Worldwide Developer Conference keynote event.

On the software front, RBC Capital analyst Amit Daryanani expects the iOS 11 - the next operating system for Apple's iPhones and iPads - to get an overhaul that will accommodate the anticipated removal of the home button from the 10th anniversary model of the iPhone due out later this year.

HomePod includes Siri voice integration and will function as a "home assistant", according to Schiller.

"There is so much momentum building around these speakers that it would be hard for Apple not to come out with one", said industry analyst Patrick Moorhead of Moor Insights & Strategy.

Apple was a bit more coy about the features that will set HomePod apart from its competition. Users might also seek song recommendations from Siri so that the assistant can begin creating a better library on the HomePod.

But while Amazon and Google have stressed the daily practicalities of the artificial intelligence assistants that run Echo and Home, Apple framed HomePod more as a music-listening platform, with practicalities like reminders and calendar nearly an after thought.

Apple had plenty of other announcements. It came as a surprise that the Amazon and Apple collaboration was the only news talked about today at the conference, rather than any of these developments.

Safari, Apple's web browser, is getting new features aimed at online annoyances. It will not block the ads themselves, though.

Apple also announced a new software kit for developers called ARKit, which will enabled app developers to build augmented reality apps on Apple's platforms more easily.

Apple is also bringing the ability to send money to friends or other people through its payment service, Apple Pay.

Apple said it had updated the processors in its iMac and MacBook Pro lineup to Intel's most recent "Kaby Lake" processors. Throughout the presentation, he boasted about the new gadget's sensors, its connection to Apple Music, and the speaker's superior quality.
